A Drabble

A drabble is story of fiction that’s exactly one hundred words in length, not including the title. It has to have a beginning, a middle, and an end. The purpose of a drabble is to encourage writers to express interesting and meaningful ideas without using unnecessary words.

Here’s an example:

 In just two weeks my true love and I would have celebrated our golden wedding anniversary. When we married it was our dream to grow old together… Who could have ever guessed how quickly it would happen! Sitting together on the veranda and watching our children; then our grandchildren, and later still, great-grandchildren run and play in the leaves that fell every November brought both of us much joy over the years. But this autumn I sit here on the front porch all alone, no young ones playing and no love by my side. I have lived too long.

Please write one and post it here to share with us.
